World-class simulation program unveiled

World-class simulation program unveiled

Mater Education recently showcased its world-class simulation facilities at its first Simulation Symposium, with the inaugural simulation fellows on hand to share their expertise and experience following completion of the Simulation Fellowship Program. 

Mater Foundation proudly supported Mater Education’s inaugural simulation fellows in 2016, providing $250 000 in funding to establish the program, which is designed to strengthen the use of innovative simulation training at Mater. 

Dr Richard Mausling (newborn services) and Dr Dominic Ormston (anaesthetics) were welcomed onto the course in February 2016 and spent 10 months completing the graduate certificate in education, specialising in simulation, through the Massachusetts General Hospital Institute of Health Professions. 

Mater Foundation Chief Executive Officer Nigel Harris said he was thrilled to see the expertise gained through the program being celebrated and recognised at Mater Education’s recent symposium.

“It’s truly incredible to see Mater clinicians continuing to develop their own clinical expertise through programs such as the Simulation Fellowship Program, expertise that can then be shared with their colleagues across Mater,” Mr Harris said. 

“I am also thankful to Mater Foundation donors and supporters; with their continued support Mater Foundation has been able to make a valuable contribution to Mater Education’s world-class offering in simulation.”

Make a donation today and help continue Mater’s work in the simulation space.
